Distributed acts of media

By Steve Outing

I encourage you to take a 6-minute break and listen to this Seesmic video essay by Paul Bradshaw, senior lecturer in online journalism at Birmingham City University (UK), as he talks about new distribution models for news. It’s important stuff.

Y’know, in the decade and a half that I’ve been involved in new media/online journalism and covering it as a journalist, I often find myself covering themes. In recent years I’ve ended up writing and thinking a lot about “citizen journalism” and “social media.” Right now, the theme is the distributed web, just as Bradshaw emphasizes in this video.

If you want to know what to focus on in 2008, this is your clue.

I agree with Steve Outing that this is important. […]

    Thanks for the compliment – just a correction: I’m a senior lecturer at Birmingham City University (not Birmingham University, which is a separate institution). It was formerly University of Central England in Birmingham, if that helps.

    Great insights! This definitely is an era of shared media. Citizen journalism is slowly garnering the attention of top media houses.
